Fashion lectures in Taiwan
Emanuele Colombo, Senior lecturer at Istituto Marangoni Shanghai Training Centre, delivered a series of lectures about contemporary fashion to Fashion Design undegraduate students in Taipei, Taiwan, in early March.
The two lectures, titled “The fashion stylist: shaping the boundaries of contemporary fashion” and “The image maker of contemporary fashion,” dealt with the effective key role of a fashion stylist in today’s fashion system, with an insight on the creative process leading from the origin of the concept, to the creation of a legendary image.
Colombo’s talks have been a source of inestimable value for the students of Taipei Fu Jen Catholic University (on March 3rd) and Shih Chien University (on March 4th) in understanding the trend-setting power of fashion stylists, as well as their ability to actually change tastes in fashion.
